Wipe that smile off your face

Sunday Times - - Business Opinion & Bits -

Armed po­lice at In­dian air­ports have been told to cut down on smil­ing, with of­fi­cials blam­ing the 2001 US ter­ror at­tacks partly on ex­ces­sive friend­li­ness, lo­cal me­dia re­ported this week.

The Cen­tral In­dus­trial Se­cu­rity Force, in charge of avi­a­tion safety, will move from a “broad smile sys­tem” to a “suf­fi­cient smile sys­tem”, the In­dian Ex­press news­pa­per said. The move was aimed at mak­ing the force “more vig­i­lant than friendly”.
